The day finally arrived. The most important day of the year. Kickoff.
The entire team huddled into the mechanical room and the atmosphere was filled with excitement and anticipation. Then, it was time. The video started and the room went silent. Everyone intently watched the game rules with “ooooo’s” and “ahhhh’s.” For those who don’t know, this years game is FIRST STRONGHOLD. On each side of the field there are towers which the opposite alliance must “knock down” by getting boulders (foam balls) through the top or bottom goal. In between are defenses to make it more difficult to get through each side. There are a total of nine different defenses in total, eight of which will be randomized every round.
The Daleks have gone into full gear! The Mechanical Team has begun to prototype designs for the robot after the multiple strategy sessions to decide what route we will follow in the game. The Business Team is finishing up applications for awards while our artist is making the finishing touches on our safety animation.
We are incredibly excited for the new season and can’t wait to see where our quest leads us!
